TRENTON, NJ (CBS) – Lawmakers in New Jersey are toughening penalties for motorists who drive slow in the left lanes.

Now, you could be fined up to $300 for failing to move over and keep right under a bill passed by the NJ State Legislature.

Sponsors of the bill say cruising in the left lane causes accidents and road rage incidents.

There is no word on whether Gov. Christie will sign the bill.
